On the other hand, the spirit from the Ajax fans should be high after they came out victorious in their previous game against SC Cambuur beating them 4-0.

This also brings fear to Rangers as Ajax is coming fresh from a five-game winning streak in the Eredivisie League.

But Rangers had an impressive run going all the way to the Europa League final last year only losing via the penalty shootout route to Eintracht Frankfurt.
